House passes Tax Cut bill….Senate passage uncertain at best…

The US House , with Donald Trump in attendance just passed that cost the American  Government $1.5 Trillion in lost revenue if enacted over the next decade….

House members never saw the details of what they just voted on….

But that really doesn’t matter since the Senate is working on its own bill…

The bill actually hurts Blue Democratic states by reducing tax breaks for middle class families who file taxes there…

The House has passed a sweeping Republican tax bill cutting taxes for corporations and many people. It puts GOP leaders closer to delivering to President Donald Trump a crucial legislative achievement after nearly a year of failures.

The House voted 227-205 along party lines to approve the bill, which would bring the biggest revamp of the U.S. tax system in three decades.

Most of the House bill’s reductions would go to business. Both the Senate and House would slash the 35 percent corporate tax rate to 20 percent and reduce levies on millions of partnerships and certain corporations, including many small businesses.

Personal income tax rates for many would be reduced through some deductions, and credits would be reduced or eliminated. But projected federal deficits would grow by $1.5 trillion over the coming decade….

  1. I don’t know what kind of tax bill will emerge from the Senate.

    It is almost inconceivable ,however ,that no bill will.

    Such would essentially be an admission by the Republican Party that it is incapable of governing.Accordingly,it is almost imperative that they pass something and I think they will.

    I have previously opined that I see no need for any tax cut at this time.

    Whatever bill emerges from all this,one fact is now obvious,the Republican Party couldn’t care less about the national debt, an issue they have hammered the Democrats on for years.Indeed that was supposedly an issue that led to the founding of the so called”grassroots” group, the Tea Party ,of which little is heard from anymore.

    1. Right now?

      I think the chances of ANY tax cut bill becoming law is LESS than 50%….

      The same dynamic as with healthcare…

      This time right leaners not enough for them…left leaners too much for them…
